On the 19th, General Sherman again disembarked his division, taking post about three miles in the interior, with three of his brigades, at or near a little log meeting-house, covering the roads to Purdy, in a northwesterly, and to Corinth, in a southwesterly, direction. His fourth brigade was detached to a point more than two miles to his left rear, at the crossing of the Pittsburg and Hamburg road, over Lick Creek. Within a few days, says General Sherman, in his memoirs, Prentiss's division arrived, and was camped on his left, filling the space between his third and fourth brigades, but some distance in advance of the latter; afterwards McClernand's and W. H. L. Wallace's divisions were landed, the first placing itself within supporting distance of Sherman, and the second on the right of Hurlbut, forming a third line, about a mile and a half from the Landing. Thus it will be seen that if we had b

The cavalry will throw well forward advaonfluent (Owl Creek) to our right front, and Lick Creek, with a similar confluent, on our left, thus, with only slight alteration: Two streams, Lick and Owl Creeks—the latter a confluent of Snake as the land rises highest and ridgelike near Lick Creek. Adjoining the river these ravines, deep anr's side— lay three miles below the mouth of Lick Creek. Two roads leading from Corinth, crossing th 5th, at the intersection of the Griersford (Lick Creek) and Ridge roads, from Corinth to Pittsburg,ed from near Owl Creek, on the left, to near Lick Creek, on the right, a distance of less than threes right wing, between the Pittsburg road and Lick Creek.

Sherman's 1st brigade, under l—by a loose arrangement—was Sherman's 2d brigade, under Colonel Stuart, near Lick Creek. About half a mile in rear of this line, and between Sherman and Prentiss, lng extension, as it was uncovered for the space of a mile in the direction of Lick Creek, and the enemy was occupying the country beyond the right.

It was now half-pffective force of four hundred and twentyfive men. The diverging course of Lick Creek had left an ever-widening space between it and the right of General Hardee's in line of battle on a ridge faced by a ravine and watercourse emptying into Lick Creek, and awaited developments, until, seeing the Confederates penetrating on Pren

This arrangement enabled n at Corinth for the movement, that the distance between Owl and Lick Creeks, near the Shiloh meeting-house, was about two miles, whereas it bold stream, with a confluent (Owl Creek) to our right front; and Lick Creek, with a similar confluent, on our left; thus narrowing the space ight flank was well guarded by Owl and Snake Creeks, our left by Lick Creek, leaving us simply to guard our front. No stronger position was f them—with a broad and deep stream behind them, and a small one (Lick Creek) separating the two bodies from each other—at a still shorter dis, Generals Johnston and Beauregard—guarding well the crossings of Lick Creek, on its south side—would have concentrated all their available fotached, over two miles to his left rear, to guard a bridge across Lick Creek. That bridge might very well have been protected by a small for
